Schizophrenic, Near Philadelphia
And "pinkish" is what Joe said when I came home on Saturday after spending much of the day sewing with two dozen other women down at the church. I was making square in a square in a square blocks from the Kaffe (or perhaps Kaffeish) fabrics. I had the half-dozen or so FQs that I'd acquired earlier and then when Glorious Color posted on Facebook that they had scrap bags, I ordered one of those and was amazed at how many of the offerings fit right in.
I'm not far from finishing this top. This top that I made the first four blocks for on Friday. I have to sew the rows together (not my favorite part), put the remaining two side borders on, and decide about a real border. I have a consultant waiting in the wings for that last.
The schizo thing is, I do this by daylight and in the evenings, when I sit with Himself watching West Wing reruns from Netflix (we're half-way through Season 5 [there are 7 seasons]), I am hand appliqueing Dresden Plates made from Civil War repros. Anybody see a disconnect here?
